Writing

Whether it involves working on a blog entry or developing a book or article idea, I am always looking for fresh ways to connect theology with every day life.

My “inspirations” usually come through some kind of life situation (frequently involving my children) that provides an illustration of a particular theological idea. Writing is also a wonderful way to express what God is doing in my life and how He is developing my faith — both in heart and mind. I write two standing columns (“Bible Bookend” and “Educator's Help Desk”) in the Reasons To Believe e-zine, New Reasons To Believe.

Psalm 104: In Wisdom You Made Them All!

Read Krista's booklet about Psalm 104 and its connection to the Genesis 1 creation account.

Psalm 104 is a poetic testimony to God’s power in creation and an intriguing parallel passage to Genesis 1. This booklet explores this ancient hymn of praise, which offers extended commentary on the events of creation days 2 and 3 of creation. It also briefly addresses the extent of Noah’s flood – was it global or local? Psalm 104 provides a source of deep encouragement for all believers. The same Creator who sustains the universe also provides comfort for His people. Purchase this resource through Reasons to Believe.

A Review of HISTORY'S The Bible

Read Krista's brief review of the History Channel's mini-series, The Bible.

In recent years, HISTORY has treated the Bible as a source for sensationalistic material, airing a steady stream of shows based usually on liberal scholarship. So it was with a fair bit of skepticism that I sat down to watch producer Mark Burnett’s miniseries The Bible. more...

Evaluating the Origin of Information

Krista offers a Christian perspective on the origin of information. This article was originally published in RTB's e-zine.

Starting an article is always the hardest step for me. As I sat at my desk just now, staring at a blank screen, I hoped that a thoughtful composition would magically materialize before my eyes.

I waited.

Nothing happened. more...
